Feel-good social media follows

Social media isn’t just for staying on top of the latest news or trends. It can also be a place where you can learn new skills and information. Here are some new “influencers” to consider following.

For education and eye candy: Museums

Museums are full of fascinating artifacts and quirky information. Many of them share those details on their social media feeds. Follow a natural history museum to learn cool facts like how big giant sea turtles could get, an art museum to see beautiful paintings and sculptures, or a history museum to nurture a better understanding of our past.

For inspiration and self-improvement: Online teachers

Whatever your hobby, there’s certainly more to discover about it online. Search the web or your favourite social media platform with relevant-to-you keywords or phrases, whether it’s hand embroidery or how to make pasta, and see what or who inspires you. Follow entertaining dancers, learn new recipes from chefs or scroll through travel images to help determine your next vacation site.

For food and science: Canadian agriculture

Everyone loves food, and while there are plenty of recipe accounts to follow, a fun twist is a new account that focusses on the food we grow in Canada and how it’s made. Follow @cdn_agriculture to meet the people of agriculture, from farmers to scientists, discover science and innovation in agriculture and join conversations on sustainable agriculture and climate change.
